Zabbix SIA has signed a Reseller agreement with the Belgian company, Secure IT. Secure IT’s main specialties are Network Security, IT Security Audit, Firewall UTM implementations, Network Access Control, Fortinet products and 2-factor authentication. The company knows that there is no single product (software and / or hardware) that can solve everything. That is why Secure IT invests heavily in know-how.

By signing a Reseller agreement with Zabbix, Secure IT was granted permission to get a demand on Zabbix services and gain benefits from its distribution on the assigned market.

IT sneak-peak

CacheSize Limit Increased to 2GB [ZBXNEXT-1600]

When running a large-scale Zabbix installation the standard cache size limit of 1GB might just not be enough. That's why we've decided to increase the limit of all proxy and server CacheSize parameters up to 2GB. This feature is already available in Zabbix 2.0.5 and the trunk.


In Anticipation for Zabbix New "Soon To-Be" Certified Trainers

On February 18-22 at Zabbix SIA HQ in Riga, Latvia, Zabbix will host its second Professional Training courses for Trainers. Professional Training for Zabbix Trainers is an exclusive offer, provided by Zabbix to its official partners. After the 5-day course completion, the candidates will be examined and then certified with an official Zabbix Trainer Certificate and their represented companies will automatically become Zabbix Training Partners, giving the right for further hosting of Zabbix Professional Trainings.

Stay tuned on our further announcements on “newly born” and “certified” Zabbix Professional Trainers, and follow up the information on all Zabbix scheduled trainings in your home country, or other countries around the world.

“The training was very useful for us. Me personally, I’ve learned a lot of a new about Zabbix and managed to systemize the knowledge I already had. I would like to express a special thanks to Aleksey Pustovalov! The most important is that the training has dispelled all our doubts about the need of implementation and run Zabbix as our primary IT monitoring.” Valerij Meljnikov, Leading Engineer of Network Management Services, TatAISneft Ltd., Tatintek.
